Huntington Station, NY area patients who are interested in improving the shape, fullness, and overall appearance of their lips may not be aware that Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee offers two different ways to improve the lip area. Lip augmentation procedures are growing in popularity as patients find out how easy it is to make a change to their appearance. The shape, size, and overall appearance of the lips can be vastly improved with cosmetic procedures such as injectables and lip implants.
Lip augmentation procedures available
- Injectable fillers – one of the more popular methods of enhancing the lips is with the use of injectable fillers. Dermal fillers are commonly used to address fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face, but many of them can also be used for reshaping the lips. The injectables may include well-known brands including Restylane, Hylaform, and Artecoll. The doctor will strategically inject these volumizing fillers into the lips for an immediate and long-lasting solution. Many patients can maintain tehri results by visiting every few months for reinjection.
- Lip implants – using specialized implants made for insertion, patients can make a dramatic and permanent improvement in the contours and size of their lips. These implants are typically inserted from inside of the mouth to eliminate any chance of noticeable scarring on the lips and face. This is a plastic surgery procedure that ensures a lifetime of beautiful smiles!
Which augmentation option is appropriate for my needs?
To decide if implants or injectables are best for an individual, our plastic surgeon visits with patients during a consultation to determine what a patient’s specific needs are. If patients are seeking a permanent solution to thin or minimized lips, they may be best for lip implants. Patients seeking minor improvement without plastic surgery may consider the added benefits of using injectable fillers instead. Speaking with an experienced provider is the first step in learning one’s options.
